Some the misc device minor numbers definitions spread in different
local c files, specially some are duplicate number with different
name, some are same name with conflict numbers, some prefer dynamic
minors.

This patchset try to address all of them.

To be honest, I didn't try build on arm or sparc arch which some
drivers depend on as I have little experience on cross-compile.
But I still checked the patch carefully to ensure it builds
in theory. Appreciate if anyone willing to test build on those arch.

  misc: move FLASH_MINOR into miscdevice.h and fix conflicts
  speakup: misc: Use dynamic minor numbers for speakup devices
